NNA - Greenpeace MENA issued a statement condemning the start-up of unit 1 of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant, located in the Al Dhafrah Region of Abu Dhabi - the first nuclear plant in the region.


"It is a wasteful investment in the wrong technology that will only deplete the scarce water resources of the Emirates," the statement read.


Julien Jreissati, program manager at Greenpeace Middle East and North Africa, said, "Nuclear energy is not the energy of the future, and definitely not the solution. With it we are leaving our future generations with nothing but a toxic legacy of radioactive and dangerous nuclear waste."
